Seemed a bit public to me, lots of houses nearby. But I waited till no one was looking, clambered over a high wall and up the reservoir embankment the pillar. Easy.

On todays visit with 'the better half' the reservoir was even lower than Aug last year. View from the trig OK but walk to the far side of the reservoir for a good view down the valley - we sat on the embankment and had lunch in some nice spring sunshine.
